The Big Mountain Cycle Challenge - Cycling Only Package

Date: 20 - 24 Sept 2019

Cost per person: £290 registration fee + £1,500 minimum sponsorship. Total: £1,790

A 4 day road cycling event in stunning mountain scenery to raise funds for the Thames Hospice new build.

Riders can participate free of charge, subject to a minimum sponsorship requirement.

Based from Hotel les Balcons du Lac, overlooking Lake Annecy, surrounded by dramatic mountain peaks, the 4 day experience includes rides ascending the equivalent of Mt Kilimanjaro 5895m (between 4 to 5.5hrs cycling/day subject to speed) or for more advanced cyclists, the height of Mt Everest 8848m (between 5 to 7.5hrs cycling/day).

Participants can decide which route to take closer to the event date and can also share the rides as a team* (per person costs and fundraising requirements remain the same).


  • Guided cycle rides each day with support vehicles, snacks & drinks
  • Warm up/down each day and first aid if required
